Saudia’s next battle ground: Turning Qatar into another Yemen

1396/4/31 | 05:51
  The fierce regional and international race to control Yemen and extend its influence in its vast territory, which is also diverse in its climates and terraces, with many political and intellectual trends, is not new but extends deep in Yemen’s history.     However, there is a new change in the Yemeni scene which is the project against the American project and the guardianship. The emergence of this variable and the fear of its effects outside the Yemeni borders is one of the main reasons for the war and the siege imposed ...

Why Iran’s supreme leader clubbed Kashmir with Yemen, and not with Palestine

1396/4/24 | 05:51
  In subsequent decades, Iranians watered down their rhetoric on Kashmir and strengthened ties with New Delhi.   When the then foreign minister Inder Kumar Gujral was about to undertake an official visit to Iran in 1991, the Iranian government conveyed to New Delhi that the minister was not welcome in Tehran. The Iranian rebuke came in the wake of an Indian military crackdown on pro-independence activists in Kashmir who Tehran considered were waging a legitimate struggle for independence. Four years later, in 1994, Iranians abstained ...

1396/4/22 | 05:51
Human Rights Watch (HRW) says the United Kingdom is profiting from the suffering of Yemeni civilians by selling arms to Saudi Arabia.     The prominent rights group made the remarks in a press release on Tuesday, after a UK High Court ruling earlier in the week declared that London’s arms sales to Riyadh were not illegal.     Describing the judgment as terrible news for Yemeni civilians, the HRW also expressed disappointment at the ruling for not helping pressure Riyadh to end its “unlawful attacks” in the war-torn ...

Did Saudia use biological weapons that unleashed cholera in Yemen?

1396/4/22 | 05:51
Cholera disease has infected more than 300,000 people in war-torn Yemen since late April, amid concerns the outbreak is party of Saudi biological warfare on the impoverished state.   “Yemen, Cholera: Disturbing.

In UAE prison: 40 days into the hunger strike: Will human conscience be reawakened if they starve to death?

1396/4/16 | 05:51
When someone’s dignity is violated and when he is humiliated regardless of his weakness and helplessness while justice is not being served, life itself becomes futile and the whole world becomes hopeless. Executioners do not usually reach such a degree of fascistic cruelty until they have been stripped of all human values. The oppressed then finds no means to speak up and protest other than by going on a hunger strike. This sums up what has happened to human rights activist, Imran Al-Radwan, whose strike reached its 40th day yesterday. He ...

Leak: UAE attempted to influence Obama policy in Yemen

The UAE Ambassador to the US, Yousef Al-Otaiba, tried to influence former American President Barack Obama’s policy in Yemen, the Intercept newspaper reported. Leaked emails from Al-Otaibi appear to show that the Emirati diplomat tried to convince Robert Malley, then a top Middle East advisor to Obama, that human rights reporting which was critical of the US-backed bombing coalition in Yemen was unfairly biased. During the exchange, which took place in June 2016, Malley responded in disbelief: “Seriously? Believing in human rights is ...

Failed militarily, Saudis seek controlling Yemen’s vital port through UN

1396/4/5 | 05:51
The United Nations Security Council in a June 15 “presidential statement” warned against potential attack by the Saudi-led Arab military coalition against Al Hudaydah, Yemen’s Red Sea port city.   This UNSC statement is deemed significant because during the over two years of the Saudi war against the neighboring Yemen, the international body has taken pro-Saudi stances to bring back to rule the resigned Yemen government led by Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.   The importance lies in the fact that this is not the first time the Saudi ...

1396/4/1 | 05:51
  This week, in New York City, representatives from more than100 countries will begin collaborating on an international treaty, first proposed in 2016, to ban nuclear weapons forever.   It makes sense for every country in the world to seek a legally binding ban on nuclear weapons. It would make even more sense to immediately deactivate all nuclear weapons. But, by boycotting and disparaging the process now underway, the U.S. and other nuclear armed nations have sent a chilling signal. They have no intention of giving up the power ...

'US not prone to blind support for Saudi'

1396/3/24 | 05:51
Scott Bennett, a former US army psychological warfare officer from San Francisco, says, “The United States is not prone to blind support for Saudi Arabia,” so the kingdom will be “isolated” if it steps up its provocative actions against Qatar. Saudi Arabia has totally miscalculated in its way of conduct toward Qatar and the Saudi-inspired “arrogance” against other countries, including Yemen, Syria and elsewhere, Bennett told Press TV on Wednesday. The arrogance will end up in the “ultimate fall” of the Saudi regime, he said. He ...

1396/3/16 | 05:51
    Amidst all the fanfare, the recent Arab-Islamic American Summit kicked off in Riyadh, in the presence of 56 Muslim leaders.Oxymoronic as it may sound, the Arab-Islamic American Summit showcased President Trump in a different veneer.     Whether Trump bowed just as low or merely squatted; it is clearer than ever that Trump unequivocally woos the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as a display of ‘principled realism’.The duo spearheaded the coveted ‘Islamic Summit’ which incidentally coincided with the Iranian Presidential elections.   ...

Cracks in Gulf allies: Saudia on the self destruction mode

1396/3/16 | 05:51

1396/3/13 | 05:51
In his first “historical speech to the Islamic world” US President Donald Trump spoke about the “battle between good and evil”, noting that from Lebanon to Iraq to Yemen, “Iran funds, arms and trains terrorists, militias and other extremist groups that spread destruction and chaos across the region”.

1396/3/11 | 05:51
    The peninsular and impoverished country has been in a state of total warfare ever since the Saudis began a brutal campaign against them in spring 2015.   The stated objective has always been to restore deposed former president Hadi to power, who fled to the Wahhabi Kingdom after the Houthi national liberation movement took control of the country, though the implicit motivation behind the war is commonly recognized by most analysts as being a proxy conflict to counter speculated Iranian influence.      The ...

Proxy wars: Is Britain paying price of waging illegal war in Iraq and Yemen?

1396/3/8 | 05:51
    Britain is reaping what it sowed. From Iraq, Libya to Syria and Yemen it has waged an illegal war.   Britain’s deal with those whom it sent to fight as proxies in yet another overseas war was a sort of reverse option to the CIA rendition programme.     Under Britain’s ‘open door policy’ those who had counter-terrorism control orders placed on them in the immediate aftermath of 7/7 — including remaining at a registered address for up to 16 hours a day — were obviously know to the authorities.     Yet ...
